Latest Information on the Furlough Scheme

HMRC will now publish some of the employers claim information

As part of HMRC aiming to deter fraudulent claims, they will now publish information about employers who claim for December onwards on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

This means that the following information will be published on GOV.UK:
  • the employer name
  • an indication of the value of the claim
  • the company number for companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)
HMRC will also be improving the information available to employees by including details of claims made for them in their Personal Tax Account (PTA).

HMRC will not publish these details on GOV.UK if the employer can provide evidence that it would cause serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain individuals or any individual living with them.

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
The scheme allows employers to claim for a percentage of their furloughed employees wages who were put on temporary leave because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

HMRC will check claims.
Payments may be refused of may need to be repaid in full to HMRC if:
  •  the claim is not made in line with HMRC guidelines
  •  the furloughed employees are not paid at least 80% of their wages
  •  the employer claims for days when a furloughed employee was serving a contractual or statutory notice period for them
  •  the claim is fraudulent, abusive or paid in error
  •  the claim includes inaccurate or dishonest information
